Curb appeal is an essential element in keeping your Mystic rental building rented out and successful. Renters want a residence that is looked after and that looks attractive. This is a property where they can feel at home and take delight in. A clean and maintained property is the key to a successful rental experience and that is why following a window cleaning schedule is such a critical part of any property management plan.
Clean windows produce many benefits for landowners and tenants alike. Designing a great first impression of the home is the most visible benefit. First impressions can make a real difference when it comes to attracting quality renters. Minor smudges and dirt may look as if it’s a small trifling thing, but potential tenants may link together dirty windows with a property owner who scrimps on property maintenance. In the end, this affects potential tenants’ decision to rent the home.
Regular window cleaning extends the life of the windows themselves. Like all of the other components of a property, windows must be soaped and washed on a frequent basis. Acid rain, hard water, and oxidation are all factors that damage window panes. Regular cleaning can help keep environmental contaminants at bay and your windows sparkling for years to come.
Industry experts recommend cleaning residential windows once or twice a year. But requiring that your tenants perform this work for you is not an ideal solution. Tenants could use unacceptable cleaning tools and materials, which could tarnish the windows further. Or they just might end up getting hurt as they try to wash 2nd story windows.
Falls involving ladders are one of the leading causes of serious household injuries. This guide to ladder safety from the United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) outlines over a dozen safety guidelines for ladder use, many of which your tenant may not know or follow. The growing liability of tenants using ladders to do property maintenance tasks is not an intelligent management practice.
To keep your rental property maintained and your residents safe, you need to engage real professionals for the job.
